Application containers like Docker help DevOps work faster and quicken time-to-market, but they also create a major Cyber Exposure gap. Traditional vulnerability management approaches can’t easily secure containers – let alone keep pace with the high-velocity world of DevOps and continuous innovation. But don’t despair. We’ve got just the thing to save you from this nightmarish ordeal. Join us as we discuss a number of container security best practices to help you:
- Learn why “shifting left” is critical to gaining visibility into containers
- Understand how container security is a win for both security and DevOps
- Find out three steps you can take to master container security

Zero Trust is quickly becoming the dominant security model for the cloud, shifting the perimeter from the network to the people and devices that make up a modern workforce. As a model with many moving parts, the immediate question is where to start?
This session will focus on:
- The full Zero Trust reference architecture and steps to get there
- Why Identity is the foundational layer to build contextual access controls from

As the network estate grows in size and complexity, the enterprise security team is responsible for ensuring a unified, comprehensive network security policy. But how can the team be sure about application connectivity and the correct implementation of change requests when applications span the breadth of on-premise, private and multi-cloud environments, each with its own security controls? In the face of application migration to multiple clouds, how can the enterprise be sure about its risk and compliance posture at all times?
In this enlightening webinar, Yitzy Tannenbaum, Product Marketing Manager at AlgoSec, will explain how unified security policy automation can help you:
•Obtain complete visibility across the entire network estate
•Maintain uniform security policy across complex multi-cloud and hybrid environments
•Monitor multi-cloud and hybrid network-security configuration changes to properly analyze and assess risk and to maintain compliance posture
•Generate audit-ready reports for major regulations, including PCI, HIPAA, SOX and NERC, on demand
•Correctly provision application connectivity flows with zero touch across the myriad security controls in hybrid environments

Are your C-suiters putting valuable company IP at risk through careless data practices? If they're like most business leaders, they are. Nearly three-quarters of CEOs admit they’ve taken IP, ideas, and data from a former employer, and 95 percent admit to keeping a copy of their work on a personal device.
A new report from Code42 and Sapio Research raises startling concerns about the role of human emotions in risky data practices such as these. The Data Exposure Report includes feedback from nearly 1,700 security, IT and business leaders in the U.S. and Europe.
Attend this webinar to learn about:
- The ways business leaders and employees put data at risk
- How lack of data visibility hampers the ability of IT departments to protect data
- Strategies for keeping your valuable IP safe--whether you experience a data breach or not

As we all know, cybersecurity is often a game of cat and mouse - attackers are always trying to outsmart us defenders. At Adobe, we face the same issues and concerns as all the other major companies. We must ask ourselves simple questions with non-simple answers: How do we ensure that all assets are protected? How do we ensure that our employees are secure from the outside threats? How can we mitigate future emerging threats? Attackers will always try to find the next unconventional attack that will bypass our security systems and our security mindset. In this case, how do we protect our self from the unknown? We believe machine learning techniques can assist us in this defense. This presentation will discuss one of our current machine learning innovations that is helping us detect anomalies in command lines. Command line interfaces are frequently used by users, system administrators and applications alike. Many applications launch console scripts to perform tasks, especially in cloud services where conformity in service environments is also helpful for security. When they can, attackers do like to leverage those native system capabilities. This presentation will discuss machine learning methods developed by Adobe computer scientists to help detect anomalies in command line scripts and calls to help prevent these types of attacks.

Serverless architectures and FaaS services such as AWS Lambda make application development scalable, easy, and cheap. Plus, there’s no server to maintain or patch! But just because there’s no server doesn't mean there’s nothing to secure. Serverless services and their dependencies still need to be used and configured correctly, which is why it’s important to maintain security visibility into your serverless architecture.
Join CloudPassage for an introduction on protecting serverless applications and underlying infrastructure and learn:
- What a serverless application looks like from a security perspective
- What threats, risks, and potential vulnerabilities could be leaving your organization exposed
- Steps you can take to secure your serverless architecture
Data breaches can happen to any organization, so it's important to understand your organization's risk of a data breach. But where should you start your assessment? What practical and pragmatic steps can you take?
In this presentation, we'll discuss the myths vs. the realities on how:
- Breaches happen
- The rapidly growing cloud and SaaS adoption changes the game for
- Identity-driven security can help reduce the probability of a breach happening to your organization

More than 90% of reported data breaches and security incidents in 2016 involved a successful phishing attack*. Attackers rely on phishing as a primary strategy because it continues to be both effective and efficient, as users remain the most vulnerable attack vector.
The best defense against phishing is proactively educating your users, through a shame-free campaign that prepares them for real-world phishing attempts. Along with teaching your users what to watch for, an internal phishing exercise can result in faster user reports of possible phish attempts and reinforce your security response plan.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Quickly and easily assess your security posture
- Help build the business case for addressing your organization’s security needs
- Build and deploy effective phishing simulations within minutes
- Identify vulnerable users and devices
- Increase the speed of user reporting for possible phishing messages
